Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Caryopteris is slightly difficult to grow and needs to be planted in locations where it does not stay wet. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Can be used as a background plant or as a specimen plant.
